Building Resilient Leadership

The last few weeks have been some of the most momentous weeks in British political history and certainly in my lifetime. The true impact of the Brexit vote on British business and our economy is far too early to call but suffice to say that in such unprecedented and uncertain times we need all the resilience we can muster – resilient leaders, resilient businesses, resilient relationships and a resilient economy.

Why Leading Is Letting Go

Leading is letting go. If you can’t let go, you can’t step up as a leader. Yet letting go and stepping up as a leader is one of the biggest challenges for many new and not so new leaders.

Why Leaders Need To Be Wordsmiths

As a leader how much attention do you pay to the words you use? If you think they’re unimportant or less important than non-verbal signals, think again. Being a wordsmith is a vital skill for effective leadership.

Yes You Can! – Why Leading With Confidence is Business Critical

We all know how important confidence is to business in general and it’s no less important when it comes to leadership. However, given how often it’s a theme in my Coaching sessions and especially with senior or aspiring women there appears to be a real issue for business here. Research proves that men and women are equally intelligent – both cognitively and emotionally – so why do so many women struggle and what’s the solution?

New Year, New Role?

Moving into a new role is always challenging. According to a recent survey 46% of new hires failed within the first 18 months. That’s why First 100 Days Coaching is a highly valuable investment of both time and money. Focussing on short-term deliverables, quick wins and relationship-building, it ensures new leaders build the credibility, trust and respect they need to get people onside fast and create the platform for long-term success.

How Stress Aware Are You?

Today is National Stress Awareness Day so I’m posing the question: How stress aware are you? One could argue that the stress word is a tad overused these days. Everyone seems to claim to be stressed pretty much all of the time. And yet the fact is it’s probably true.

How Threatening Are You?

Whenever we feel threatened we go into survival mode (fight/flight/freeze). A very useful mode from an evolutionary perspective when our lives might be in real danger, but in modern times triggered all too easily in far less dramatic circumstances.

Are You Paying Attention?

The ability to pay attention to what you’re paying attention to is a uniquely human skill and yet it is underutilised in modern society. Focussed attention is what enables neuroplasticity – the capacity for our brains to develop and grow throughout our lives. It is also at the heart of effectiveness, efficiency and accuracy in everything we do. Yet distractions and so called multi-tasking are the order of the day. How can we re-focus our attention and improve our performance?

Why Perfectionism Isn’t Always Perfect

A good friend and colleague in my last corporate role would regularly remind me that I didn’t need to be perfect. I didn’t need to be in the office until 10pm re-crossing every t and re-dotting every i – the work was already good enough.

What’s Driving You?

We rarely think about what’s driving us. We beat ourselves up for not being motivated enough but we don’t think about the underlying cause. Essentially what drives us are our emotions…
